Thank you for a wonderful stay! I spent two weeks travelling round Ireland and stayed in a different hostel each night and this was one of the best. Linda is a fantastic host - she really takes care of her guests and the place is really clean and tidy. The kitchen is well equipped and it’s a short walk into town. A really relaxing place to stay. Thank you!

I stay at Donegal Town Hostel each year on my way to school in Glencholmcille. The hostel is clean and the staff is friendly and welcoming. It is an easy walk into town (maybe 1 kilometer?) beside the main road, but there is also a lovely walk through the fairy woods.The bed is comfy and the kitchen is well equipped. My room did not have a private bath, but the bath was just a few steps down the hall.

Very clean and very tidy place. Absolutely can recommend this hostel. I would stay here again. Linda is extremely friendly and cheerful. (But her husband(?) can be a little grumpy.)

Fantastic place. Came here in May 2019 and enjoyed it so much came back 2 months later. Hosts are excellent, the double ensuite room is very nice, and location is ideal, being only a 10 minute walk (or 20 minutes via the scenic route) into town centre. Room was very clean. Hosts very helpful with advice but never intruded. Highly recommend.

This is a lovely, old building, but beautifully maintained and graciously staffed by the owners. We stay here every summer and will be back next year. Donegal is a wonderful and friendly, medium-sized Irish town with great shopping, Pubs, and Restaurant.

We had a lovely stay here. The family room was spotless, comfy bed. The kitchen is well equipped and the common areas good. Great value, lovely location and most importantly, the welcome from Linda and Andy.

Great hostel. The house is over one hundred years old and feels comfortable. The room that I stayed in was easy access to a real shower/ toilet and a toilet very close. The walk into town can be 10 minutes or one can go through the fairy woods by the river. The host is super attentive and kind. Great place to stay!

Wonderful place, look forward to staying there when I return to Donegal later in the year. Linda is a fantastic host, my room was comfortable, clean and quiet. The kitchen is really well-organised to cater for those who want to do their own cooking and a natural hub for the guests so it's a good place for conversation.

j'ai l'habitude de séjourner en auberge lors de mes voyages. Celle-ci est exceptionnelle par son confort (de la literie, des douches, du salon, du jardin ...) par sa propreté et surtout par l'accueil et la très grande gentillesse de Linda et Andy. J'y ai séjourné plus d'une semaine et j'ai bien l'intention d'y revenir.
